What Would I Fast Pass- Magic Kingdom

One of the questions that I am asked often is what 3 fast passes to select.  The Magic Kingdom has the widest selection of fast passes to choose from.  There are rides, attractions, and parades and the combinations are seemingly endless.

So if my husband and I only have 1 day to spend at the Magic Kingdom our 3 fast passes are

  1. Space Mountain
  2. Splash Mountain
  3. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

These selections are made based on rides that are not only our favorites, but ones that consistently have longer lines.  I also choose these as my 3 because we don’t have children, all three of these have height restrictions that we don’t have to worry about as adults. (Next week I will follow up with suggestions if you do have littles!)

If we have a second day at the Magic Kingdom my fast pass combinations would be slightly different.

Day 1

  1. Space Mountain
  2. 7 Dwarf Mine Train
  3. Splash Mountain

Day 2

  1. Space Mountain
  2. Flight of Peter Pan
  3. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Now I realize that Space Mountain is on there twice, but I REALLY love that ride 🙂

30 Day Challenge- Day 4 “Favorite Magic Kingdom Ride”

Confessions of a Mouskaholic's 30 Day Disney Challenge

Confessions of a Mouskaholic’s 30 Day Disney Challenge

My favorite ride at Magic Kingdom is a REALLY tough one.  There are a lot of great classics, like the Flight of Peter Pan, and It’s a Small World, and even more thrilling rides like Space Mountain, but my favorite is Splash Mountain. (This was a REALLY HARD CHOICE… Space Mountain is a close second) I went with Splash Mountain because of the story telling involved.  This transports you to the cartoon land depicted in the movie Song of the South (which is interesting that Disney built a ride around a movie that had never been released to home video due to its racist overtones).  You enter the world of Brer Rabbit and all of the other “Brer” characters. When I rode it for the first time I assumed that you went up a hill and then came splashing down the other side, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the ride is SO much more than that!  You’ll leave the ride humming Zip A Dee Doo Dah, whether you like it or not!

Last Day of Vacation- Magic Kingdom and Coming Home

Today is our last day at Walt Disney World.  It is always the saddest day on a Disney vacation.  We aren’t flying home until this evening though (yes I definitely planned it that way lol), so we are going to make the most of our day!

6:30- Wake Up Call

7:00- Snacks for breakfast at resort food court

7:30- Check out and check in for our flights (they will take our luggage for us), and store our carry on items with hotel

8:15- Head to Magic Kingdom

8:45- Pre-show at Magic Kingdom (there is a special preshow every day before the park opens.  It is magical and all around wonderful, and I recommend that everyone sees it!)

9:15- Fast Pass for Splash Mountain

10:35- Fast Pass for Space Mountain

12:15- Lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant

12:50- Fast Pass for The Flight of Peter Pan

1:30- Return to Resort to catch Disney Magic Express back to the Airport

3:00- Board DME to go to the airport (For your return to the airport you will catch the DME bus back 3 hours before your flight for domestic flights, 4 hours for international)

6:05- Fly back to Atlanta

7:33- Sit in Atlanta Airport, and gather thoughts for upcoming blog posts!

9:15- Depart Atlanta for Hometown airport

11:05- Land at hometown airport

11:30 Begin crying because I miss Disney already lol!

Today’s new experience- The Be Our Guest restaurant is our new experience and I am very excited for it!  There is a lot of hype over this restaurant, and I don’t know of one person who has been there who didn’t like it!  Also visiting a park on departure day is a new experience.  We’ve usually taken an early afternoon or morning flight back home, so visiting a park on departure day wasn’t an option.  I am looking forward getting in some last minute magic 🙂
